There's a new 'Evil Dead' movie in the works, set to take the action out of the cabin and into the wider world. Titled 'Evil Dead Rise', it is currently unclear if the upcoming film will be a new reboot or a sequel to 2013's soft-reboot film 'Evil Dead' by Fede Álvarez. Here is everything you need to know about the project:

Release Date

'Evil Dead Rise' is expected to start production in 2021 so we're expecting it to arrive in theaters by either late 2021 or early 2022.

Plot

Not much is known about the plot of the movie but it has been revealed that the film will aim to make the series more current than in its previous installments. There were plans for a sequel movie to 2013's 'Evil Dead' and if 'Evil Dead Rise' is that sequel, we will probably see more of the adventures of Mia Allen (Jane Levy).

Cast

The cast for the movie is yet to be announced. However, franchise star Bruce Campbell has already revealed that he will not be returning to his fan-favorite role of Ash Williams. Campbell will serve as a producer on the series alongside franchise creator Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. It hasn't been revealed yet if Jane Levy will reprise her role as Mia Allen from the 2013 movie but this is expected to be the case.  Stay tuned for more updates.

Director

Cronin is an Irish director and writer. He is best known for his work on the 2019 horror film 'The Hole in the Ground'. Cronin was reportedly handpicked for the project by Sam Raimi himself, so there's clearly a lot of expectations riding on him to deliver a movie worthy of the cult classic franchise.

Trailer

A trailer for the movie has not been released yet but we will be updating this section as and when one becomes available. Until then, watch this space for more updates as they become available.
